A recorded delivery letter today. My medical records from the hospital that I requested so I could find out what type of mesh and the serial number of the material used. I am gobsmacked at what I read in the records. I had a CT scan done in 2012, six months after I had my hernia repair. This is the first time I have seen or been told the result of the scan. The radiographer has written that the scan done with contrast has picked up that there is probable mesh infection !!! Now after scan when I saw the consultant I was told there was no problem with the mesh and my pain would settle.
Well here I am in 2015 after running (hee hee... running) to the doctors, GP's with chronic pain, fatigue, nausea since 2011, only to find that it is probably mesh infection. Been fobbed off with pain killers.
Earlier this year my GP sent referral to surgeon for re-assessment. Now waiting on results of new scan.
Question is what should I do about their neglect in my treatment in 2012. I have never been able to go back to work.
